Tax new adult

Young adult living at home, no income, still in education, all bills paid by daddy including health insurance. He's received a tax form in his own name to fill in. Rather confused as to which his health insurance goes on to. His or daddys?

Re: Tax new adult

His I would guess. I assume he's an adult in the eyes of the tax office so any and all deductions he can claim should go on his form, not yours.

Re: Tax new adult

On the other hand on the parents form you can make a corresponding deductions for the support of depended persons.

His - been through it 3 times in the past 7 years. It used to be they'd get a refund - so you'd pay it, they'd get the cash. Now the refund is deducted from the premiums for the following year.

One to watch: the kid's franchise remains where it was before they were 18. You might want to change that. We got caught once.

Re: Tax new adult

I imagine there may be cantonal differences.
aSwissInTheUS seems to have the right answer for Geneva.
Someone has just mentioned to me about them still being dependent up to the age of 25 years old & that has helped me find the references. Apparently he is still considered a "charge" so we can put it on daddys form.

For the health insurance itself it has indeed tripled... youngest neddy is still at chf 180 for a few more weeks but older brother neddy went up to chf 515, so it's a bit of a shock to the system.
